Click here: IINA – Nine killed as Israel shells Gaza after border clashes

Israeli shelling killed seven Palestinians in Gaza City yesterday after two Israeli civilians were killed in a commando raid on the Israeli border, medics said. A tank shell hit a house, leaving two dead and three wounded, the medics said. The house lies near the Nahal Oz crossing between Israel and Gaza, which was stormed by Palestinian fighters earlier, sparking a heavy gun battle, according to news agencies. Palestinian fighters from the Gaza Strip burst into southern Israel and attacked a fuel depot, killing two Israeli civilians in a daring daylight raid that threatened to set off a new round of fighting.
Another three Palestinians were killed when Israeli forces shelled a nearby house in Gaza City after the assault through the Nahal Oz crossing between the Hamas-run territory and Israel, Palestinian medics said. Another three fighters, who the Israel army said it believed were fleeing the fighting, were wounded in an Israeli air strike on a vehicle in Gaza City.
